As part of the Sagamore-Venture Nonprofit Book series, Nonprofit Law overviews laws, rules, and regulations that apply to nonprofit organizations.
The book covers myriad topics from the basics of contract and tort law, to the laws and duties of affecting nonprofit boards, to lobbying and advocacy, to fundraising. This book encourages the consideration of legal matters from the viewpoint of the nonprofit organization itself, personnel of the nonprofit organization, clients of the nonprofit organization, and the community in which the nonprofit organization operates.
An important point, Nonprofit Law does not provide legal advice—but it does offers thorough explanations of topics that are important in nonprofit organizations and encourages critical thinking of the laws and regulations applicable to those organizations.
